Just Enough travels inside the conflict zone of Thailand’s southernmost provinces and explores traditional Malay Muslim culture. Manickam takes an insightful look into the lives of Thailand’s Malay Muslims, focusing on education, environmental destruction, and the threatened livelihoods of coastal fisherfolk, as well as charting the roots of the southern Thai conflict through her travels in the region. This is a personal
journey that reveals the colors of daily life beneath the violence of newspaper headlines.

Mira Lee Manickam has conducted research on southern Thailand for ten years.
